MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Syrian opposition groups and a Syrian government delegation will hold talks in Moscow with the aim to find ways to settle the conflict, which has been continuing in the country since 2011.
The discussions will be held behind closed doors in two stages: representatives of opposition groups and the civil society will meet on January 26 and 27, and delegates from Damascus will join them on January 28 and 29.
Participation of international representatives, including United Nations special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, is not planned.
An informed diplomatic source told TASS that all Syrian opposition groups, but the Istanbul-based National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, accepted the invitation to the talks. The Syrian government’s delegation is headed by Syrian permanent representative to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the meeting was expected to bring a dialogue between the government and the opposition to practice.
